Imagine a whole city scaled down to ¾’s its size where kids are in charge. They explore what the city has to offer, taking on real-life roles and professions such as a surgeon, a pilot, a veterinarian, a banker, and many more. Kids earn money in local currency (kidZos), which they get to spend on experiences and souvenirs, invest or donate to a cause. KidZania runs on kid power – and that means the city lights up when children run down its paved streets with vehicles and choose from over 100 different occupations to role-play. Every activity is ultra-realistic, and the equipment is either real-life functioning (like the fuselage of a real Boeing at the entrance area), or extremely authentically-looking. What brings even more realism to the experience is the fact that most of the professions are represented by real-life brands, the leaders of each respective industry. That way, kids can take on the role of a genuine American Airlines pilot, a Chase bank teller, host a Spotify podcast, or play the drums at the Columbia Records Music Studio. Fun and learning collide at KidZania in a thrilling journey into the world where kids are empowered to make their own choices – from electing a career path to deciding what to spend their money on, or maybe save it until next trip to KidZania and get a memorable souvenir or a toy at the KidZania Department Store. A child can even become a citizen of KidZania and get a real passport with a picture and a visa stamped by KidZania Dallas. The passport is valid in all other 28 global KidZania locations.There is a lot to explore at KidZania – there are exciting physical activities like a challenging Ropes Course where children role-play construction workers, or a Climbing Wall. Window-washing has never been more fun – and it’s a pretty well-paid career at KidZania!
An average visit to the city built for kids, run by kids lasts about 4 hours, and you can only fit in 6-8 activities, which means your kids will want to return to KidZania and try out more careers and fun activities. And of course, KidZania will be there, happily welcoming you back.
